What the Sketch - Some Tough Competition

The BSA's annual "What the Sketch" competition was last night and Team LDa was there to defend our title. In addition to our team, Payette, ARUP and Silman brought their A-teams to battle for the trophy and championship title. New to the mix this year - fictional buildings, bridges and monuments/statues, throwing us all some serious curve balls. After four lively rounds of charcoal sketches and lots of laughs, Team Payette took home the trophy. Congratulations to the winners!

Below are some pictures from the event...

Let the sketching begin!

Some intense concentration...
